i remember growing up, anxiously counting down the days till she would get home from college. i just absolutely adored her. and still do. story time. i was in 8th grade. she was home from college. i was still in school. i came home wallowing in mucky muck from a brutal day in the life of a middle school drama queen. stormed upstairs. only to find my room decked out in homemade signs. signs telling me how important i was. signs telling me just how much i was loved. i still have the image of one in my head. it was orange painted with gold glitter and a beautiful sun. it said "your smile brightens my day." i remember feeling like the luckiest girl in the world. i was so flattered that my cool, older, much-more-mature, had-a-boyfriend, no curfew, went-to-college sister took time out of her much cooler life to do that for me. (good thing our progression didn't come to a screeching halt at age 13, RIGHT? ha!) things haven't changed much on courtney's end. she is still that same thoughtful, creative, much cooler, selfless sister she was when i was going through a day in the life of a pre-tween drama queen. she's just got it goin ON. super sexy, super momma, super strong, super faithful, super dedicated, super funny. i always look forward to when i get to see her and spend time with her. i love her company.
i just adore her.
so grateful we are sisters forever.
(stuck like glue)
happy birthday court.
